Want To Know What A Stylist Really Buys At Ikea?

I have a grey and white lounge with lots of brushed steel (an industrial coffee table was my pride and joy). I didn’t want to be another ‘me too’ home with a typical ‘hotel’ theme, instead opting for something a bit more trendy.

My Home

Now I’m yearning to redecorate, obsessed with coral, deep oranges, navy (definitely navy), gold and teal. But with our home about to go on the market and houses in Finchley and Hampstead being so expensive, it means being frugal for the time being. Artwork, heavy duty books and ornaments (I love Pandora Syke’s home here and here as inspo) are things I won’t scrimp on. But when it comes to frames and fake plants and things I can replace, I know I’m not alone in stacking up my IKEA trolley!
